Gable and clock on the Unley Sports Club (Philip Hadley)

What do the Davis Cup, a Lawn Bowl Disaster & a Lawnmower Have in Common?

It was Sir Sidney and Lady Kidman’s patronage that helped establish the Unley Park Sports Club in 1924, for bowls, croquet, lawn tennis, and later Petanque. What was the cause of the 37-year booze drought? Who were the members that played for Australia in the first Davis Cup? What disastrous event happened to the Bowls Club in 2004? The first constitution of the Croquet Club barred men from joining! Learn how the invention of the lawnmower affected the development of the sports played at the Club. After the presentation, have a go, or enjoy refreshments with other sports fans. Bookings required by phone or email.
